News from The Spike’s LA correspondent Becky B who has this to say:
“Twist on the turmeric tonic is to blend with macadamia nut milk. Drink iced or warm.
Found in only the coolest coffee shops obvs
Tastes rank xx”
I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a turmeric tonic?? I’m so behind. It’s basically 1998 in my house.
Proper respect please for Becky’s pretty photo, please. I’ve got such a stonking crush on her sunglasses.
“Tastes rank”: I like Becky B’s style. Can I be The Spike’s Croydon correspondent?* We’re getting a Boxpark here next year, so it’ll be almost like LA. *I’m anticipating a “no”.
Ooh I’ve read about those! It’s some kind of curry smoothie; ginger, turmeric, cayenne, coconut milk, all the usual raw healthy shit, blended together and necked while thinking how glowy and healthy and THIN it will make you look, and trying not to be sick. Y’know, the usual.
I actually had a turmeric incident yesterday, making pea and potato soup, a teeny touch of tumeric and cumin…top fell off. Soup was orange. I’m still traumatised. Don’t fancy this…..
